The Gurney Resort Hotel & Residences, Penang….in a word…..eeeeew!

There are no excuses for a filthy, unhygienic hotel room but my room in The Gurney Hotel was disgustingly dusty. The curtains (with those holes in them) looked like they hadn’t been washed for 15 years, the carpet was sticky and dirty, and it was generally unclean. Makes you wonder what they are paying the cleaning and house keeping staff for doesn’t it?

My room is certainly big and spacious, but bigger does not mean better here. A grand hotel it is not. The decor was more of 90’s cheap chain hotel feel. It was a big room with a micro-mini TV. And a Mickey mouse ironing board. The beds had some of the most uncomfortable mattresses I have ever slept on.  They were solidly hard and in dire need of replacing as you could be forgiven if you thought you were sleeping on the floor.  The pillows were so soft it was non-existent. The dark and gloomy writing table and work area is more suited for the visually impaired. 

I’m embarrassed to even admit that I stayed at The Gurney Hotel. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
